Ever since I’ve seen a few of the later series (Cincinnati Bengals & New York Jets) ones that made UK TV I have wanted to see them all - but seeing as the very first one was way back in 2001 in the US it’s real hard to find torrents or links that still work. So hard in fact it has taken me several months to locate a working link for the very first Baltimore Ravens Hard Knocks series. To my knowledge this has never been available in the UK so may interest other NFL fans on here.
Yes there’s lots of pop ups and malware you have to close down but if you have an anti-virus programme it’s just like any streaming site - you need to close down several pages of pop ups and keep pressing play on the original video until it plays and don’t give you a pop up. Now I have finally found a link that worked for S1 E1 Baltimore Ravens I decided I would share it and over time try to post a working link to every episode of every hard knocks series as I get round to watching them myself. I will only post links that worked for me - does not mean they will always work in the future but hopefully it will aide those of you like me who want to see every episode of every series of Hard Knocks. Also if a link stops working and you find another that’s better or still works please post about it and I’ll try to keep the original post updated with working links.
Hard Knocks is a reality sports documentary television series produced by NFL Films and HBO. The show was first broadcast in 2001. Each season, it follows a National Football League (NFL) team through its training camp and covers the team’s preparation for the upcoming football season.
The series shows the personal and professional lives of the players, coaches and staff, including their family life, position battles, and even inside jokes and pranks. It particularly focuses on rookies’ adjustments to playing in the NFL, usually with emphasis on the team’s most recent top draft pick. It usually also chooses to focus on undrafted and journeyman players who are attempting to make the team.
